Managing director Rob Halliday-Stein, 41, set up this online bullion dealer 10 years ago with £10,000. The Birmingham business has since delivered more than 250,000 orders of precious metals, from collectible gold coins to 100g palladium bars. Profits nearly doubled to £4.2m in 2017, driven by demand for bullion in the wake of global political and economic events such as Britain’s vote to leave the European Union.
